Simple Salmon & Sweet Potatoes

  • 1 Piece Wild Salmon: High in protein, Full of heart healthy Omega 3 Fats
  • 1 Sweet Potato: Packed with Vitamin A and Vitamin C, and unlike other potatoes they do NOT cause spikes in blood sugar.
  • Broccoli: HasĀ anti-cancer properties, improves eye health, and is a good source of calcium and vitamin C
  1. Peel and chop one sweet potato, put it in a pan of boiling water on the hob
  2. The salmon can go straight in a pan of hot water that’s simmering (light bubbling, not going crazy) on the hob
  3. Wait 10 minutes
  4. Cut some bits of broccoli, put that in a sieve and place it over the sweet potato, then put on the lid (you are trying to generate steam inside the pan)
  5. Wait 5 minutes
  6. Checks: Salmon shouldn’t have any uncooked pink patches inside, potato shouldn’t be too tough when poked with a fork
  7. Drain the potato and salmon, put it on a plate and add the broccoli
  8. (optional) Add hot sauce if you find health food bland (NB: I use Sriracha here, be aware it’s not good for you as it’s high in sodium and sugar)


Some people might not even consider this a “recipe” as it’s just cooking three ingredients, but I don’t care as it’s really healthy and takes 15 minutes.

You can eat this 2-3 times a week for a great dose of healthy fats and no big spike in your blood sugar levels.
